Coronavirus Advice

If you believe that you or an individual in your house may have coronavirus (Covid-19) then it is essential that you follow the advice on the NHS website and inform school as soon as possible. You can do this by calling the school on 01924 326750 or by emailing our dedicated covid-19 email address on covid19@stpetersschoolbirstall.co.uk

Below is the latest information on the symptoms of Covid-19 from the NHS. 

Main symptoms

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.

What to do if you have symptoms

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:

  1. Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.
  2. Follow the latest isolation guidance from NHS England. There are exemptions to the isolation guidance.
